I always thought it sad when a topic went uncommented on then was ultimately solved by the poster. This seems to be a problem with the LO start screen. When Writer is started from the start screen all the above issues exist. When Writer is started directly (/path/to/libreoffice5.0/programs/soffice --writer) it acts exactly as expected, middle mouse button pasting from any programs. Not solved but figured out.

OK, an update. The vast majority of middle mouse button pasting I do is from a terminal window or text editor. If I highlight text in a term window or text editor (medit, nedit) and middle click in Writer I get the autoscroll indicator. If I highlight text in a Writer document then middle click in a second Writer document I get the expected pasting. After that, I can paste from a terminal window or text editor just as in past versions of LO. Curiouser and curiouser.

5.0.0.3, English, Writer Arch Linux, English

Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> View -> "Middle Mouse Button" is set to "Paste Clipboard" but clicking the middle mouse button always causes it to Auto-Scroll. What might I be doing wrong?
